NEW Deadline 5 PM on February 8, 2013 — Proposals are being accepted for Desire2Learn IGNITE Regional User Conference Minnesota 2013, to be held Friday, April 5, 2013 from 7:30 AM – 4:30 PM. (Note: This is a regional conference which is different from the annual Fusion.) Sponsored by Desire2Learn and hosted by Normandale Community College, this user conference is open to all Minnesota State Colleges and Universities faculty and staff and K-12 educators. Users from other states are also welcome. The conference will showcase many aspects of teaching and learning with technology, but especially focusing on Desire2Learn (D2L), a learning management system and The Quality Matters Program™, a peer review process that supports the design of quality online and blended courses.
Session proposals are being sought from statewide MnSCU and Minnesota K-12 faculty and teachers, as well as staff and administrators, for sessions which fall into one of these three tracks: Teaching and learning, Support and training, Program Management/Collaboration Planning. Sessions that focus on D2L and/or the Quality Matters Standards and Process will be given preference.
While priority will be given to Minnesota-based educators, proposals are welcome from practitioners in neighboring states.
